    Drivin N Cryin

    Pop

    Celebrating their 30th Anniversary together in 2015, Atlanta-based southern hard rock act Drivin n Cryin charges ahead with plans for a new studio release and a whole lot of touring!  

    In October 1985 Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ played their first show at Atlanta’s famed 688 Club.  The band quickly gained attention for its blistering live shows and amassed a rabid fanbase in the fertile soil of the late-1980s music scene in the Southeast. Now 30 years later, founding members Kevn Kinney and Tim Nielsen find themselves enjoying a milestone anniversary for the band, having survived the pressures of fame, a shifting musical landscape, multiple lineup changes, and miles of back roads and highways to arrive here.

    With a gold record, 10 full-length albums and a handful of EPs to their credit, the band still refuses to rest on its laurels, DNC has had an amazing rotation of lead guitarists joining them such as Warner E. Hodges (Jason & The Scorchers)Aaron Lee TasjanMark Bryan (Hootie & The Blowfish) and others while continuing to tour the United States and Europe to great acclaim.  In 2015, a vinyl-only collection of 10 choice cuts from the band’s 4-EP “Songs” series, entitled Best of Songs, was released on Nashville’s Plowboy Records. In 2017,  the lineup now includes guitarist Laur Joamets (Sturgill Simpson) and a Fall release on Island Records.

    Comfortable with their past and confident in their future, the band has an arsenal of songs, a full tank of gas, and no plans of stopping any time soon.

    Somebody's Darling

    Folk Rock

    Their name may sound like a soft lullaby, but Somebody's Darling are anything but sleepy. The five Texas-born musicians jam bluesy rock 'n' roll tunes that are big and commanding in every possible way - from lead singer Amber Farris' impressive vocal chops and wild blonde hair to the band's ballsy rhythm section and grooving guitar licks. Think My Morning Jacket fronted by a woman, or Alabama Shakes if they'd been born in Texas. Now together for seven years and three albums, their most recent release, 2014's Adult Roommates, takes a mature and sometimes stark look at what it means to be a working band. The Dallas band recently relocated to Nashville to tour and write the next record.
